This property is within walking distance of the airport, the room was well appointed and comfortable, and guests have access to Rydges Resort across the road. Good Chinese restaurant but had to go over to resort for breakfast on the Sunday as the restaurant was closed and there was not any room service breakfast, the quality of the breakfast at... More

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Darwin Airport when arriving in the early hours of the morning. Staff were friendly and welcoming at all times of the day and night. Our room was clean, spacious and amazingly quiet despite being near the lifts. The bed was very comfortable, good pillows and light bedding. The bathroom was... More

A BIG Thankyou to our excellent reception staff members, in particular Sarah, and also Katy who sincerely went 'over the top' to make our stay a memorable one in many positive ways.

We never intended to stay here, but were put up here when our plane was diagnosed with an engineering fault. The service from check in to check out was nothing short of exemplary,especially seeing as it was at such short notice. Would highly recommend to travellers. And the deep fried ice cream at the hotels Chinese restaurant was delicious!

Thank you for the review, I am pleased you have had an enjoyable stay with us and that the team was more than accommodation. Having a flight cancel on you last minute can be frustrating, but I am glad we were able to turn what could have been an off-putting experience into a positive one. All the best More

I you are catching that early flight then there are very few options in Darwin and the Rydges is the most convenient. This is a typical transit hotel with a high turnover o clients. Staff are courteous, the rooms clean and that's about it except the price! You pay through the nose for the ability to walk to the airport

Checked in late in the evening, location is close to airport and free shuttle was quick to arrive. Driver was disappointing, had been asked to be careful of a fragile bag. Ignored and dumped a heavy bag on top, causing minor damage. Hotel staff are fine, but could be a little more friendly. Smile never hurts. Return driver (different) next... More

It was clean and very close to airport - right next door. But it was over priced and staff weren't overly helpful. For me cleanliness is the most important thing. We stayed for just 4 hours in between flights. Shuttle comes to get you if you call but an easy stroll too.

The Darwin Airport Hotel is a great hotel, located at the Darwin Airport. Unlike other airport hotels it I does not charge premium rates but offers room a better rates than downtown Darwin. The rooms are a good style, with all you need. If you have a car everything is within a ten minute drive, beaches, malls, downtown CBD night... More

I travel to Darwin to conduct business on the islands and this hotel is a few minutes walk from the airport. The reception staff are friendly and efficient and the rooms, whilst not 5 Star, are adequately furnished and fitted. The pool area is attractive and there is a poolside bar. On my last visit, a few days ago, it... More
